We could not point out better handbooks for the student of the Greek.
One of the most popular and useful literary enterprises of the nineteenth century.
The value of the work as an aid to biblical study, not merely in schools, but among people of all classes who are desirous to have intelligent knowledge of the Scriptures, cannot easily be over-estimated.
The books are scholarly without being pretentious, and information is so given as to be easily understood.
